    Here's the original study:

    Sorge et al. 2014 Olfactory exposure to males, including men, causes stress and related analgesia in rodents. Nature Methods. Published online 28 April 2014 doi:10.1038/nmeth.2935

    Abstract:
     
  4. Male hormone exposure produces a guarded anxious response.
    Female hormone exposure produces a calming response.

    Since researchers are either male or female, how can a neutral baseline be established ( for any and all studies )?
